The only Austrian winner of the Pritzker Prize (1985) and president of the architecture biennale in Venice, the Viennese architect Hans Hollein (born 1934) has been a leading exponent of postmodernism in architecture. Yet his global stature as an architect has overshadowed his design work of the 1970s and 1980s and his artistic work of the 1960s and 1970s, despite past exhibitions at The Museum of Modern Art, New York and the Centre Pompidou in Paris. This richly illustrated, comprehensive catalogue, and the exhibition it accompanies at the Neue Galerie in Graz, is the first retrospective of Hollein as a truly universal artist and a renaissance man for the digital age. It is also the first to present Hollein's oeuvre as a whole: his work as artist, designer and architect, but also as theoretician, curator, teacher and collaborator with such artists as Christo and Claes Oldenburg.
